Add some extra dose of good old Myaskovsky & you'll be perfect.  8)

 ;D

we kid, we kid, but that reminds me i still need to try the Myaskovsky recommendations I got from Jeffrey recently (16 symphonies out of the 27.. initially !!  ;D). Glad i didn't ask recommendations for Leif Segerstam's...  :P 0:) :laugh:

Tax season here in the US. Until April 15th, when all income tax returns are due, is the busiest time for tax attorneys and accountants . I don't know Todd's exact profession, but it is tax related. He normally disappears from the forum at this time of year for a couple of months.

Oh, that's a good explanation. A time-wise taxing season for Todd.  ;D

I've had a very hectic, stressful and nerve-wracking week...
You have all my sympathy, as I have been in similar situations with my own family over the past few years.  Friends made me suggestions of music specifically written to console (Howells's Hymnus Paradisi was mentioned several times), but I found there was more help to be had from composers who'd suffered as much as you can imagine, yet hardly betrayed it in their music.  Schubert, Schumann and Tchaikovsky were top of my list - endlessly life-affirming, in spite of the rubbish that life threw at them.

But it's not something that can easily change.

In 2002 Finland started using euros instead of Finnish mark (mk). One Euro was just under 6 mk, so multiplying the euro prices by 6 gave the price in Finnish marks. So, CDs that used to cost ~120 mk were ~20 euros and so on... ...for about two years some people said they keep converting prices to Finnish marks in their head to have an idea of how expensive things are, but after that everyone just used euros: ~20 euros was the normal price for CDs, 10 euros was a cheap CD and 5 euros bargain bin price... ...then came LED lightning and multiplying by 6 was a thing again: 10 W LED equals 60 W incandescent lamp.  ;D

...people learn to use other "units" if they just start doing so.
